LUFKIN, Texas (KTRE) - An accused member of the Lufkin-affiliated gang JaccBoyWorld pleaded guilty to murder and multiple other charges in an Angelina County court on Friday.

D’Corian Haywood, 21, of Lufkin, pleaded guilty to charges of murder, deadly conduct, and three counts of evading arrest. Haywood is one of three people charged in the Jan. 18, 2022 shooting death of Damarion Glenn. Others indicted are Zaccheuas Albro and Lazarian Roberson, both of Lufkin.

“If there was anything to give on this life so he could walk again, if the price was life I would give mine,” Trina Jackson, Glenn’s sister said.

According to an arrest affidavit for Roberson, Haywood, his step-brother (Albro), uncle (Roberson), and a fourth person who is not charged in relation to the murder of Glenn, used a borrowed SUV to drive from Lufkin to Diboll. Once in Diboll, the four eventually drove into a parking lot, leading to a confrontation with multiple parties, including Glenn, in a parking lot at the intersection of Cypress Street and Robert Nash Street.

And, according to the family, the hearing was bittersweet.

“I’m happy, but it’s also a sad moment,” Brittney McDonald, Glenn’s cousin said. “It’s not all tears and joy. We still don’t get Damarion back.”

Haywood lived with the family before Glenn’s murder, but now he’ll live behind bars as he was sentenced to eight years in prison for the deadly conduct charge, a total of 16 years for the evading arrest charges and 30 years for murder. He will serve the sentences concurrently.

When asked for comment following the hearing, Trina Jackson, older sister of Damarion Glenn, said the sentences given should have been higher.

“30 (years) is not enough,” Jackson said. “Damarion was not a street thug. ... Everything Damarion did was for his family that he loved.”

Jackson said she often relives the days leading up to Glenn’s death as she’s still not over his murder.

“I look at pictures of Damarion and I wonder was this the last time I saw him in person,” Jackson said. “Was this the last time we talked? Was this the last time he held my baby?”
